Community Leagues across the City of Edmonton are tapping into the power of the sun and green energy savings. In 2013, six leagues completed building retrofits and installed solar PV arrays to meet their energy needs. The projects will enable them to reduce their carbon footprint, cut costs, increase their resilience through renewable energy generation, and support the City’s goals of reducing GHG emissions and conserving energy. They are expected to yield combined savings of $8,891, 493 GJ and 55 tonnes annually.
Participants included the Alberta Avenue, Meadowlark, North Glenora, Ritchie, and Riverdale Community Leagues as well as the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues. This remarkable initiative generated significant interest in the community, with interested participants being required to take part in a lottery to determine eligibility.
Project partners included the MCCAC, City of Edmonton, C-Returns, Solar Energy Society of Alberta, Pembina Institute, and Howell-Mayhew Engineering.
